The volume pot on my TC Konnekt 8 has gone bad for the second time in two years. Not just scratchy: it passes audio at full volume all the time. They are quoting $130 to replace it. It seems pointless to repair the Konnekt 8 because it will probably just fail again. It's not like I was hard on the thing: it is permanently attached to my office PC so I can listen to music on good headphones.
I'm going to apply the $130 I would have spent repairing the Konnekt 8 towards purchasing a SoundDevices USBpre2, which has basically the same functions as a Konnekt 8, but is not going to fail. I am not buying any more TC Electronic interfaces.
